excel-streaming-demoSolace appliances enable topic-based pub/sub and request/reply messaging using the unified messaging APIs. Solace provides APIs including C, C#, Java, JavaScript, SilverLight, Flash, iOS and supports Node.js. We have used C# APIs to build Automation DLL for Excel to be able to connect to the Solace appliance and able to publish/subscribe using “User Defined Functions”.

This demo uses the C# API to subscribe to messages published to the Solace appliance running in the cloud at Solace’s headquarters in Ottawa, Canada and stream data realtime on the excel spreadsheet.

Publishers can send messages to “topics” and subscribers can “listen” to topics to get matching data. A random data generator is publishing dummy market data messages for various currencies on different topics.

The topic structure is as follows:





The spreadsheet subscribes to all such data, with a valid subscription using UDF and paints the received data into the spreadsheet.
